RACHEL’s SISTER DEBUTS

By Gulfstream Press Staff — Gladys, a full sister to 2009 Horse of the Year Rachel Alexandra, is scheduled to make her debut Friday at Gulfstream Park.

            The 2-year-old daughter of Medaglia d’Oro is slated to break from the outside post position in a field of 10 2-year-old fillies assembled for a $65,000 six-furlong maiden special weight race carded as Race 6.

            Gladys was named by owner/breeder Dede Mc Gehee, a graduate of the University of Florida’s College of Veterinary Medicine, in memory of her late maternal grandmother, Gladys Atkinson Houser.

            Gladys is the eighth foal out of Lotta Kim, a daughter of Roar whose first foal was Rachel Alexandra, who was named 2009 Horse of the Year after winning five Grade 1 races in a row, including the Preakness, Haskell and Woodward against males and the Kentucky Oaks.

            The Kentucky-bred Gladys, who is trained by Kelsey Danner, has been prepared for her debut with a series of 10 breezes at Palm Meadows, Gulfstream Park’s satellite training facility in Palm Beach County.

            Angel Arroyo has the mount.
